This is a beautiful and soft beadspread. I love chenille. Such a timeless and classy look. Beautiful quality. I ordered the taupe/linen and the color was definitely what I consider to be taupe.I have not washed mine so I cannot comment on washing durability. My only negative comment at all would be about the shams. I ordered separately. I received my sham order yesterday. I was not expecting it to be one sham. I was expecting it to be a set.Everyone please know this when you order. It was beautiful even without the shams but since I only had the one, I redordered today. I just think kind of expensive to pay $XX.XX per sham.

I was excited to find a spread that would fit my King bed and looked somewhat decent. Although I thought the price was a bit high I was willing to go the extra $ to have a spread vs. a comforter. I was disappointed at the construction of the spread. The chenille looks like an old rug was sewn onto the fabric but that is not the worst of it. I have dark wood floors. This spread sheds chenille worse than my dog sheds hair. Its so bad that if I was really on top of it or anal I would have to vacuum every day maybe twice a day. I have washed it twice in hopes that the shedding would stop but no luck. I can not recommend purchasing this spread.
